Vista x64 unattended.xml Error

I am working on an oobe.xml file that gets copied to unattended.xml when installing Windows Vista x64, but it always stops with the error, "Windows could not parse or process unattend answer file [C:\Windows\Panther\unattend.xml] for pass [oobeSystem]. The answer file is invalid."

After looking at "C:\Windows\Panther\UnattendGC\setuperr.log" for my error, it all seems to start from an invalid processorArchitecture. So, what should my processor architecture be? Right now I have it set to x64 - see below.

I know I have an x64 disk. setupact.log confirms it - "2011-05-09 18:15:09, Info IBS InstallWindows:Setup architecture is [x64]"

the correct value for ProcessorArchitecture for the x64 platform is "amd64". You should replace x64 with amd64 in your xml file and try again.

e.g. the corrected line in your example would be:

<component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.micro...fig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/20...hema-instance">

Hope this helps.
